Being on the road, I listen to a lot of podcasts to keep my mind busy and not fall asleep. In the past, I only had two or three, but recently I listened to all of them and came across a lot more interesting ones. Fitting in with my interests, they are more business, pickup, etc. related.
http://www.buddhistgeeks.com/They interview a lot of interesting people including scientists, researchers, spiritual teachers, and what not. None of the New Age type bullshit, but you probably need at least a remote interest in Buddhism, mindfulness, or meditation to care. Anywhere from 15 minutes to 1 hr, usually longer on the recent ones
http://www.daygame.com/podcast/UK guys that just talk about day game. I think there's a lot of fluff, but it does get me socially motivated to meet new people which is good when I'm visiting a new city where I know no one. They have an emphasis on honest, direct game which I like. Around a hour each.
http://radiolab.org/I've listened to every single one of their episodes. Usually they choose a broad topic or questions like Bad Guys or Colors or Guts and try to find the answer and tell a lot of antecdotes along the way. You will be entertained. And I've been unknowingly retelling the stories because they're so good. About a hour.
http://ecorner.stanford.edu/podcasts.htmlI just found this recently and only listened to two of them but boy were they really really good. Stanford Univ's Entrepeneur Center interviewing CEOs and entrepeneurs with Q&A at the end
My favorites are This American Life, The Moth (true stories told live on stage), The Joe Rogan Experience, Radio Lab, Girl on Guy W/ Aisha Tyler, The Adam Carolla Show and Smart Passive Income.
Koreans Gone Bad is the best one I've listened to. David Choe is a very eccentric character and all the guests have great stories. FWIW I'm not even that interested in Korea, but it's awesome.
I second The Joe Rogan Podcast and Smart Passive Income, and I'll add in Pick Up Podcast (one of the best pick up knowledge sources I've ever had) and Foolish Adventure (great entrepreneur podcast)

So back in January, I wrote out my 7 goals for the year. It's been two months, so let's see how I'm doing :
1. Become FULLY polyphasic
I'm close on this one. Many days I go perfectly, sometimes if I have nothing to do I oversleep and then skip some naps during the day. I'm actually pretty satisfied with that, as I'm only sleeping 2.5-4.5 hours per night, I'm never tired, and can always count on being awake early and staying up late. I'll keep pressing to be more consistent, but I'm satisfied with where I am.
It's been quite a while, hasn't it?
2 weeks since the last post. Oh well, I'm not going to make any excuses, let's just go straight to the point, which is "Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance".
I'm a subscriber to PS+, and I gotta admit, it's a lot more comfortable than going to a shop and buying a game. And It's also quite a deal, minding the fact that I wasn't so keen on the actual/last generation of consoles. Well, we do get a lot of good games every month, and by being a Vita owner too, I get +even more shit to play. But I digress. The new spin-off to the one of my favourite game series is a really, and I mean a really great game. It's made by Platinum Games, the creators of Bayonetta and many other great titles, and it does deliver a giant dose of adrenaline. If I was to explain that game in one sentence, it would be "Holy, fucking, shit.". This game is the definition of cheesy, comic book and internet awesome. We have everything here. Cyborg Ninja Warriors, Giant Robots, Swords, Epic Bosses and a security guard otaku. The graphics? Top Notch. I was amazed, that PS3 can pull something like that off. It was running mostly in 60 FPS, I experienced slowdowns in really intense moments (And I mean Intense to the power of intense) and I had a script freeze that forced me to do a Boss Battle once again, but these things didn't ruin the experience for me.
